Do you wake up in the middle of the night from a dream about food, so vivid that you have an intense craving to eat it?
I have sushi dreams!
If I lived in Tokyo, I could run out at 2 am and actually fulfill my sushi dreams at Sushizanmai, a popular sashimi and sushi chain that's open all day and night.
24 hour sushi! I know I've died and gone to nigiri heaven!
The lighted menu board outside this branch near the Shimbashi station is an education in itself. I want to go inside and order each and every kind!
Don't go during rush hour though as the queue can take up to 30 minutes!
For starters, we indulge in a nice big bowl of chirashi sushi topped with my all-time favorites -- grilled unagi, fresh ebi, salmon roe, saba, ika, tamago, kani, and different cuts of maguro!
There's minced tuna maki, ultra smooth and fatty toro, which is served two ways, raw and lightly seared.
The slightly grilled toro is so addictively yummy, we have two more pieces for the road!
